Michelin Pilot Sport A/S

The Michelin Pilot Sport A/S was developed to be the Ultra High Performance All-Season tire that provides all-weather traction while minimizing compromises in dry & wet road handling to complement the performance of sports cars, coupes & sedans that require year round traction even in light snow.

 

On the outside, the Pilot Sport A/S features a “three compound tread” that is made possible by the extremely precise capabilities. The Pilot Sport A/S uses three distinct tread compounds. The first places a special high dry grip tread compound in both shoulders. The second is a balanced dry, wet, snow & cold tread compound that is used between both shoulders & the tire’s center rib. The third tread compound used in the center rib, has been developed to provide wet traction confidence. These three tread compounds are molded into a directional tread design with a continuous circumferential center rib flanked by high angle directional tread blocks. The continuous center rib sharpens steering response & provides communicative road feel while reducing tire noise on dry roads. The high angle lateral tread blocks enhance responsiveness & handling while the tire’s circumferential & high angle lateral grooves efficiently evacuate water from under the contact patch to resist hydroplaning & enhance wet traction.

On the inside, two high-tensile, lightweight steel cord belts are reinforced with Michelin’s “Filament At Zero” (FAZ) technology under the tread area. Michelin’s FAZ spirally wraps an individual str& of Kevlar across the entire tread area under the steel belts, & again above the steel belt’s edges to enhance wear & ride comfort while providing high speed durability & predictable handling.

Michelin Pilot Sport A/S tires feature black sidewall styling with subtle black letters reversed out of a circumferential serrated band. They are W- or Y-speed rated & available in 55-, 50-, 45-, 40, 35- & 30-series sizes for 16" to 20" wheel diameters.
